Tweedale flats for coun­cil rent near­ing com­ple­tion

The Oban Times - - News -

A £2.9M hous­ing de­vel­op­ment on Fort Wil­liam High Street is due to be com­pleted next week.

The de­vel­op­ment of one and two-bed­room homes in the Tweed­dale build­ing, which started last Fe­bru­ary, is due to be fin­ished on Thurs­day April 27.

A spokesper­son for High­land Coun­cil said: ‘ Work on the town cen­tre site, which had lain empty for a long pe­riod and is pro­vid­ing 22 flats for coun­cil rent, is nearly com­plete.’

All 22 flats have been al­lo­cated and the ten­ants will be moved in as soon as pos­si­ble.

This lat­est pro­ject takes the to­tal spend on hous­ing to £40 mil­lion in Fort Wil­liam over the past five years.

In ad­di­tion to the Tweed­dale in­vest­ment, the coun­cil is work­ing with part­ners to pro­vide other af­ford­able homes in Fort Wil­liam. Lochaber Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion, along with the coun­cil, is work­ing to bring 13 new houses to the site of the for­mer Bel­haven Ward, across from Lochaber Leisure Cen­tre.

The £1.8 mil­lion re­de­vel­op­ment will see five of the 13 homes as wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble bun­ga­lows for coun­cil rent and eight, one and two bed flats for rent by Lochaber Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion.
